PASO ROBLES, Calif., July 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heritage Oaks Bancorp ("Heritage Oaks" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:HEOP), a bank holding company and the parent of Heritage Oaks Bank (the "Bank"), reported net income available to common shareholders of $2.9 million, or $0.09 per dilutive common share, for the second quarter of 2014 compared to net income available to common shareholders of $2.4 million, or $0.09 per dilutive common share, for the second quarter of 2013, and a net loss allocable to common shareholders of $1.8 million, or $0.06 per dilutive common share for the first quarter of 2014. For the first six months of 2014, net income available to common shareholders was $1.2 million, or $0.04 per dilutive common share, compared with net income available to common shareholders of $5.7 million, or $0.22 per dilutive common share for the same period in 2013. The increase in net income for the second quarter of 2014 as compared to the same quarter a year earlier, was primarily due to the increased pre-tax net income resulting from the inclusion of the operating results of Mission Community Bancorp ("MISN") into the Company's operating results. In addition, during the quarter ended June 30, 2013, the Company incurred $0.4 million in dividends and accretion on preferred stock, which was not incurred during the same period in 2014 because the Company repurchased the TARP Preferred Shares in the third quarter of 2013.

Second Quarter 2014 Highlights

  • Gross loans grew 46.9% to $1.1 billion at June 30, 2014, compared with $746.6 million, at June 30, 2013. Year over year loan growth was primarily due to $280.7 million of loans acquired through the MISN transaction, which occurred on February 28, 2014. After eliminating the impact of the MISN acquisition, gross loans contracted by 2.1% during the three months ended June 30, 2014, and grew by 9.3% during the twelve months ended June 30, 2014.
  • Total deposits grew 57.8% to $1.4 billion at June 30, 2014, compared to a year earlier, primarily as a result of the $371.5 million of deposits acquired through the MISN transaction. Excluding the impact of the MISN acquisition total deposits grew 2.9% during the three months ended June 30, 2014, and 15.8% during the twelve months ended June 30, 2014. Non-interest bearing demand deposits grew 60.8% to $461.6 million compared to the prior year, with the growth largely resulting from the additional non-interest bearing deposits from MISN of $137.6 million. Non-interest bearing demand deposits now represent 33.1% of total deposits at June 30, 2014, compared to 32.5% of total deposits at March 31, 2014.
  • The allowance for loan and lease losses ("ALLL") as a percentage of gross loans declined to 1.52% at June 30, 2014 from 2.40% at June 30, 2013. The decline is due primarily to the inclusion of loans acquired from MISN in the denominator of this ratio; however at June 30, 2014 there is no ALLL attributed to these loans. Loans acquired from MISN were acquired at their fair market value and have not yet required any incremental ALLL. A fair market value discount of $10.0 million was recorded for the loans acquired through the MISN acquisition at the closing of the acquisition. Accretion on the loan discount was $0.9 million for the second quarter of 2014.
  • For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded $1.3 million in merger, restructure, and integration costs related to the MISN acquisition, which were partially offset by a favorable $0.4 million update to the valuation of two former Heritage Oaks Bank branch buildings that are in the process of being sold. Projected merger, restructure and integration costs for 2014 are now estimated to total $10.2 million. This includes $8.0 million of costs that have been incurred in the first six months of this year, and additional costs of $2.2 million that are projected to be recognized over the remainder of this year. Operations attributable to the MISN acquisition increased the Company's pre-tax net income by $1.6 million and provided an additional $4.1 million of net interest income, $0.3 million of non-interest income, and $2.8 million of additional non-interest expenses during the three months ended June 30, 2014.
  • Regulatory capital ratios for the Bank at June 30, 2014 were 9.53% for Tier 1 Leverage Capital and 13.70% for Total Risk Based Capital. The Company had a tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio of 9.54% at June 30, 2014. Tangible book value per common share was $4.76 at June 30, 2014 as compared to tangible book value per common share of $4.61 at March 31, 2014. At June 30, 2014, both the Company and the Bank maintained regulatory capital ratios at levels that would be generally considered "well capitalized" for regulatory purposes, respectively.
  • The Company recorded goodwill of $13.4 million during the first quarter of 2014 for the MISN transaction which represents the excess of consideration paid for the net assets acquired as compared to their fair market values at the closing of the acquisition. In accordance with accounting guidelines we are permitted to refine our initial estimate of goodwill for a period of up to one year after the acquisition date. During the second quarter of 2014 we adjusted our goodwill downward by $0.2 million for a cumulative total goodwill related to the MISN merger of $13.2 million. This adjustment was primarily a result of an increased valuation on former MISN branch buildings, which are in the process of being sold as part of our branch consolidation strategy, thereby decreasing goodwill.

"Since the merger closed on February 28, 2014, our team has focused on the smooth transition and integration of the Mission Community Bank customers and operations into our organization. On July 19th we successfully completed the system conversion for the former Mission customers and we are now all on one system," stated Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Heritage Oaks Bancorp. Ms. Lagomarsino continued, "To date our customer retention has been very high as evidenced by the retention rate on the former MISN deposits of 97%. During the second quarter, we took the opportunity to exit a few loans that were not consistent with our credit standards; these loans totaled approximately $15 million. This positions us well to focus on growth along the Central Coast in the future. I am also proud to announce that we will be paying a cash dividend of $0.03 per share during the third quarter, which equates to a 1.7% annualized yield based on the current market price of our stock. This demonstrates the board's commitment to enhancing shareholder value. It is also a testament to the strength of our core banking activities and financial performance."

Net Income (Loss) Available to Common Shareholders

Net income available to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.9 million, or $0.09 per dilutive common share, compared with net income of $2.4 million, or $0.09 per dilutive common share, for the second quarter of 2013. The net loss allocable to common shareholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 was $1.8 million, or $0.06 per dilutive common share.

The key component contributing to the Company recording a net loss allocable to common shareholders for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 was merger, restructure and integration expenses of $7.1 million related to the MISN merger which was completed on February 28, 2014. These expenses were significantly less at $0.9 million for the second quarter of 2014, and there was no corresponding expense incurred in the second quarter of 2013. Year-to-date earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $1.2 million, or $0.04 per dilutive common share as compared to $5.7 million or $0.22 per dilutive common share for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Earnings before income taxes, provision for loan losses and merger and integration costs increased by $1.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 as compared to the linked-quarter, and by $2.8 million year-to-date through June 30, 2014, as compared to the same prior year period, primarily as a result of the inclusion of MISN earnings in the Company's earnings.

On July 23, 2014 we declared a dividend of $0.03 per common share which is available to our common shareholders as well as the holders of our Series C Preferred Stock.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $15.2 million, or 3.98% of average interest earning assets ("net interest margin" or "NIM"), for the second quarter of 2014 compared with $10.1 million, or a 4.04% net interest margin, for the same period a year earlier and $12.5 million, or a 3.98% net interest margin, for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. Net interest income increased by $2.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2014, due primarily to increased income contributed of $4.1 million from MISN's earning assets.  During the second quarter the Company benefitted from having MISN's operations for the full quarter versus just one month during the first quarter of 2014. Total loan discount accretion from the acquired MISN portfolio was $0.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 as compared to $0.4 million for the one month post MISN acquisition during the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The NIM for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 would have been 3.74% had it not been for the accretion of the purchase discount related to the MISN acquisition, which added 24 basis points to the NIM. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, and 2013, net interest income was $27.6 million and $20.4 million, respectively, a $7.3 million, or 35.8%, year over year increase. $5.6 million of the year over year increase is attributable to the net interest income from the loans acquired and deposit liabilities assumed through the MISN transaction.

Provision for Loan Losses

No provisions for loan losses were recorded during the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 or the linked quarter ended March 31, 2014.  We recorded net charge-offs of $1.3 million during the three months ended June 30, 2014, which were primarily the result of $1.7 million of charge-offs recorded on two loan relationships that were originated several years ago.  

No additional provision was required to cover these charge-offs due to the offsetting positive trends in our ALLL, such as improvement in our historical loan loss experience and a reduction in our qualitative factor adjustments for improvement in national, regional and local economic conditions.  The lack of provisions for loan losses over the last seven quarters was largely driven by the gradual improvements in the overall credit quality of the loan portfolio, and a shift in the loan portfolio to products with lower credit risk. 

Net recoveries were $0.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 and $0.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.  The acquisition of MISN had no impact on loan loss provisions during the first and second quarters of 2014, because MISN's loan portfolio was recorded at fair value at the closing of the acquisition. Our second quarter evaluation of the MISN portfolio indicated the un-accreted fair value discount of $8.9 million as of June 30, 2014 was sufficient to cover any probable inherent losses in the loan portfolio at that time. 

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.5 million as compared to $2.9 million for the same period a year earlier. The decrease was primarily a result of lower mortgage banking revenue of $0.6 million.  Non-interest income improved in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the linked quarter, primarily as a result of higher mortgage banking revenue of $0.2 million. Non-interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 was $4.2 million and $8.6 million, respectively. The difference for the year-to-date periods is attributable to lower gain on sale of investment securities of $3.5 million and lower mortgage banking revenues of $1.2 million, respectively, in 2014 as compared to 2013.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense was $13.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to $8.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, and $17.0 million for linked quarter ended March 31, 2014. The year over year quarterly non-interest expense increase is a result of $0.9 million of merger, restructure and integration expenses and the increased operational expenses of $2.8 million for the addition of MISN operating costs recorded during the second quarter of 2014. For the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 non-interest expense was $30.0 million and $18.4 million, respectively. The increase is a result of $8.0 million of merger, restructure and integration costs and $3.9 million in operating expenses added as a result of the MISN merger.

The decrease in non-interest expense for the second quarter of 2014 as compared to the first quarter of 2014 was largely the result of lower merger, restructure and integration related costs related to the MISN merger of $0.9 million in the second quarter versus $7.1 million for the prior quarter.  Other increases to non-interest expense during the second quarter of 2014 compared to the linked quarter related to the operating costs of the acquired MISN operations, such as increases for salary and employee benefits of approximately $1.4 million, occupancy and equipment costs of approximately $0.6 million, and other non-interest expenses of approximately $0.8 million. Salaries, occupancy, IT and other expenses will be elevated over the next two quarters until the completion of the integration and conversion of our systems and the completion of our branch consolidation plan.

During the second quarter of 2014 gross merger, restructure and integration costs of $1.3 million were incurred and were comprised of: $0.8 million of accruals related both to termination benefits paid to employees displaced as a result of the merger and for retention of key employees through integration related milestone dates, $0.4 million for merger and integration related other professional services and $0.1 million attributable to moving expenses related to the branch consolidation plan. 

These costs were offset by a $0.4 million write-up of held for sale facilities to adjust the fair market values from lower appraised values to actual agreed upon sales prices. We have sold one of the four branch buildings in our planned consolidation of MISN operations and have executed sales agreements on the three remaining buildings as of June 30, 2014. It is expected that future charges related to one-time merger, restructure and integration expenses will be approximately $1.9 million in the third quarter, and $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. The financial impacts of merger and restructure initiatives are expected to be complete near the end of 2014.  At that time we expect to gain full benefit of the consolidation of the operations of the two organizations.  We expect to reduce the number of full time equivalent employees ("FTE") from approximately 350 at the time we announced the MISN acquisition in October of 2013, to 315 as of June 30, 2014, and settling below 300 by the end of 2014. We anticipate that the financial impact of these efforts will result in an approximate $9.0 million reduction of operating expenses as compared to the annual combined 2013 operating expenses of the two entities before the merger. 

Operating Efficiency

The Company's operating efficiency ratio decreased to 71.90% in the second quarter of 2014 from 118.28% for the first quarter of 2014, compared with 65.00% for the same period a year ago.  For the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, the operating efficiency ratio was 92.63% and 71.35%, respectively. However, exclusive of merger, restructure, and integration costs recorded in the second quarter of 2014, our operating efficiency ratio would have been 66.65% for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 and 68.19% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. Our operating efficiency ratio for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014 reflects the impact of the charges to non-interest expense discussed above. In addition to the previously mentioned one-time merger, restructure, and integration expenses, the most notable impact on the operating efficiency ratio has been the positive impact to net interest income resulting from the increased scale of the combined entity. Total non-interest expense as a percentage of average assets, another measure of the Company's efficiency, was 3.12% for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to 3.17% for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, and 5.07% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.  This performance ratio adjusted for the merger, restructure, and integration related expenses would have been 2.90% for the second quarter of 2014, and 2.95% for the first quarter of 2014.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $1.7 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2014 and 2013. For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the income tax benefit was $1.1 million.  The Company's effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2014 was 37.1% compared with 38.6% for the same period a year ago, and (37.9)% for the quarters ended March 31, 2014. The effective tax rates for both the first and second quarters of 2014 were impacted by non-deductible merger related expenses.  Income tax expense was $0.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and $4.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. With regard to the deferred tax assets acquired through the MISN acquisition we analyzed the net operating loss carry-forward and other income tax attributes for realization on the combined entities' tax return. Our analysis indicated that we would achieve 100% realization of these assets over future periods. 

Balance Sheet

Total assets increased $15.5 million, or 0.9%, to $1.7 billion at June 30, 2014 compared to $1.7 billion at March 31, 2014. Total assets at June 30, 2014 increased by $580.8 million or 52.9%, compared to June 30, 2013.  The majority of the increase in the year over year asset levels relates to the acquisition of MISN which added $280.7 million in loans (at fair market value), $76.2 million of investment securities, and $37.6 million in cash and equivalents at the closing of the acquisition. Total shareholders' equity was $191.2 million at June 30, 2014, an increase of $4.6 million, or 2.4%, compared to March 31, 2014 and an increase of $44.9 million, or 30.7%, compared to June 30, 2013.  

The year over year increase was primarily due to the issuance of 7.5 million shares of common stock at $7.99 per share upon consummation of the MISN transaction, partially offset by the July 2013 repurchase of the Series A Preferred Stock and related warrants from US Treasury, and to a lesser degree a decline in accumulated other comprehensive loss due to the improvement in the fair value of the investment securities portfolio, which resulted from the decline in long-term interest rates.

Total gross loans decreased $17.2 million, or 1.5%, to $1.1 billion at June 30, 2014 from March 31, 2014, and increased $350.3 million, or 46.9% from $746.6 million at June 30, 2013. Total new loan production, including mortgage loans originated for sale, decreased $73.2 million, or 54.4%, to $61.3 million during the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared with $134.5 million a year earlier. The decline in gross loans for the second quarter was attributable to four key factors: a $15.3 million reduction due to our efforts to exit loans that are not consistent with our credit profile from the Bank; a $16.3 million reduction in agricultural credit line utilization due to a seasonal pay-down on those loans; participations sold of $4.4 million which were part of our portfolio management strategy; and the redirection of our focus during the second quarter to the integration and retention of MISN customers from organic loan production.

Total deposits grew $28.4 million, or 2.1%, to $1.4 billion at June 30, 2014 as compared to balances at March 31, 2014 and grew $510.9 million, or 57.8%, from $883.3 million at June 30, 2013.

Classified assets at June 30, 2014 totaled $44.2 million, compared to $48.1 million at March 31, 2014, reflecting a $3.9 million or 8.2% decrease. The decrease is related to a reduction in the existing legacy classified assets. Non-performing assets were $11.7 million at June 30, 2014 compared to $10.3 million at March 31, 2014.  PCI loans acquired from MISN had outstanding principal balances of $15.6 million, with a carrying value of $12.0 million at June 30, 2014, which approximates fair value.

Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses

The ALLL was $16.6 million, or 1.52%, of total loans at June 30, 2014, compared with $17.9 million, or 1.61%, of total loans at March 31, 2014, and $17.9 million, or 2.40%, at June 30, 2013. The decrease in the ALLL to total loans ratio is due to the acquisition of the MISN loan portfolio at fair market value which was acquired by the Bank on February 28, 2014. These loans had a fair value discount of $8.9 million at June 30, 2014, including the discount on PCI loans of $3.6 million. In accordance with applicable accounting standards, no ALLL was recorded on the MISN acquired portfolio because such loans are carried at approximately fair value at June 30, 2014. Additionally, through our quarterly internal analysis we determined that the remaining un-accreted discount on these loans as of June 30, 2014 was sufficient to absorb future credit losses inherent in the acquired loan portfolio.  Non-performing loans at June 30, 2014 totaled $11.4 million and increased by $1.5 million as compared to prior quarter end. Total loans delinquent 30 to 89 days were 0.05% of total gross loans as of June 30, 2014. Given the positive trend of a declining level of classified assets offset by a slight increase in non-performing loans, the credit quality and risk profile of the Bank's loan portfolio was materially unchanged when compared to the prior quarter.

Regulatory Capital

The Company's and the Bank's regulatory capital ratios exceeded the ratios required to be generally considered "well capitalized" for regulatory purposes. The Tier I Leverage Ratios for the Company and the Bank were 9.83% and 9.53%, respectively, at June 30, 2014 compared with the requirement of 5.00% to generally be considered a "well capitalized" financial institution for regulatory purposes. The Total Risk-Based Capital Ratios for the Company and the Bank were 14.10% and 13.70%, respectively, at June 30, 2014 compared with the requirement of 10.00% to generally be considered a "well capitalized" financial institution for regulatory purposes.  The Company had a tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio of 9.54% at June 30, 2014.
